    Hi there,

    I purchased a HDMI cable (HDMI Mini DisplayPort 1.1a input and HDMI 1.3b output, video resolution 1080p) and connected both laptop and TV. Works great (video/audio), except that the audio has a bit of a delay. Called TV company and they recommended switching to an RGB cable instead of HDMI.

    Any recommendation on what to do would be great..

    Computer: 2009, MacBook Pro, 2.53 GHz
    TV: Hitachi L42S504 (Hitachi L42S504 | Owners Guide)
    I'd like the sound to come out of my 5.1 A/V receiver

    Thank you.

    Macbook and Philips standard TV
    Hi,

    I have a 2007 Macbook 2.0. I want to connect it to a Philips TV model 27PT543S, which is just a standard TV with component inputs. I have a mini-DVI to s-video/component adapter. When connected, the Macbook reads the TV as a display, but I can't find the proper resolution. At some resolutions, I can see the image of my computer screen in the TV, but it is vibrating and moving across the TV. Any suggestions?

    Thanks for your help.

    My osx 10.5.8 does not detect any display
    Hi

    I bought a screen for my laptop, which is running with osx 10.5.8., and almost always it detects nothing. I am getting mad with it, looking for solutions and i found nothing, only some blogs full of people with the same problem.

    Does anybody know how it could be solved?

    Thanks a lot

    We're going to need a bit more specifics here. Which make and model screen? Which Mac laptop is involved? There are several capable of running 10.5.8 and I think there are different video connectors on some models.

    If you need help finding this information please post back

    iMac to SONY HDTV
    May be a dumb question... I am able to hook up my iMac to this TV without issue and I know how to transmit the sound. My question: Is there a way for the TV to act as the ONLY monitor without having to "mirror" the screen on both the imac and the TV? Hope this is a clear question. Thanks.

    The closest thing I am aware of almost does that. While you have the TV connected to the Mac open the Displays preference pane. Go to the Arrangement section and uncheck the "Mirror Displays"option

    Before you leave this pane drag the small white bar representing the menu bar from the square representing the computer to the square representing the TV.

    From now on programs will open on the TV unless you move them to the computer screen. The computer screen will continue to show a desktop image though rather than go blank.

    2012 MacBook Air to LG 42LD550 TV
    Hi there,

    I have a 2012 MacBook Air 1.8 running OS X 10.8 Lion, and the LG 42LD550 TV.

    I tried connecting the two via a mini display port to hdmi adapter + hdmi cable. When I connect and go to the correct input on the TV, the input becomes available to select. I select it, it tries to connect, but still shows no signal. The MacBook starts blinking blue.

    When I go to System Preferences --> Displays, there are no other devices detected. I'm not sure what is wrong - I've tried replugging the cables already. Could somebody please help? Would appreciate it!

    Thanks,
    Sharon

    mid 2012 macbook pro
    Hi, just like everyone else I want to connect my macbook to my tv. I have everything I need, and I actually have an image so my question is very specific. My macbook will only output 800 X 600 and upwards and my tv won't take it (S-Video). What I get is a double image on the tv. Apple support says that I can't do anything about it although the official specs say that I can do 640 x 480. So, how do I force my intel 4000 to display that resolution? I did manage to make the macbook work on clamshell and allow much higher res but not lower. The other option is to make my Sony Triniton allow 800 x 600 but I can't do that.

    Please see Post # 7 in this thread. If you are not using a "converter", it will not work. Adapters alone will not work.

    Thunderbolt or Mini Display Port
    I have a 13 MBP - with a mini-display port. Bought the laptop from a friend. Do I have to get a mini-display port cable or can I just go with a thunderbolt cable (better prepared for the future)? Do they even sell mini-display cable's anymore? Thoughts?

    Thanks
    -Zak

    I've got an early 08 Macbook Pro (this one) and am looking to connect it to my HDTV (it's an LG42LH3000, the manual can be had here). Before I buy any cables I just wanted to check what I need. As far as I can tell I just need a DVI to HDMI cable and a jack to rca for audio, would I be right in thinking this?

    DVI to HDMI must use HDMI/DVI In - port # 1
    You will not use an RCA cable - you will use a stereo mini-plug cable (3.5mm) and must use the port indicated in the diagram below



    From pg 16 of the owners manual available at the link you provided.
